On July 3, Hawaiian Airlines began selling tickets for its new nonstop route between Honolulu and Brisbane, Australia, with an introductory round-trip fare of $1,106 (includes taxes and fees) offered for travel originating in Honolulu. The new thrice-weekly service begins November 27, 2012.
The special introductory fare for the Honolulu-Brisbane flight is available for purchase through Monday, July 18, and is good for a six-month travel period from November 27 through May 30, 2013, with a maximum stay of two months.
Tickets can now be purchased online at HawaiianAirlines.com, by calling Hawaiian’s reservations department toll-free at 1-800-367-5320, or through any professional travel agent.
Subject to Australian government approval, Hawaiian will be the only U.S. carrier flying to Brisbane. The capital city of the State of Queensland, Brisbane is centrally located on Australia’s east coast and is the gateway to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef, world heritage listed rainforests, the iconic Outback territory, and the renowned leisure destinations of Australia’s Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
Along with providing nonstop service to a destination known for its popular sites and attractions, Hawaiian has designed its flight schedule for travelers to make same-day connections to other cities throughout Queensland and to other states across Australia through its interline partnership with Virgin Australia.
Beginning November 27, Hawaiian’s Flight HA 443 will depart Honolulu at 10:20 a.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, cross the international dateline and land in Brisbane at 4:00 p.m. the following day.
Beginning November 28, the return flight HA 444 will depart Brisbane at 6:35 p.m. every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, cross the international dateline and arrive in Honolulu at 8:05 a.m. the same day.
Hawaiian will operate its Honolulu-Brisbane service offering the comfort of its wide-body, twin-aisle Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, seating 264 passengers in a two-class cabin, with 18 in Business Class and 246 in Economy Class.
